Logitech Wireless Mouse M180
Advantages: Long battery life, Robust, comfortable, value for money, precise, reliable.
Disadvantages: Challenge to adapt to the speed of the mouse.
Using wired mouses my whole life, a wireless one would be something new. I began to search and stumbled across the Logitech Wireless Mouse M180. I never paid too much for the mouse, around £10. Now upon opening the case I could see the logitech symbol on the top and i also noticed that the mouse came with a really small usb receiver which was just great as i know other mouses can come with rather large ones. This mouse is rather big but thats a good thing as your hand fits snugly around it. The mouse requires 2 batteries though which can be a hassle as there are many wireless mouses which only require one battery. To open the slot for the batteries, all you have to do is push the red "connect" button on the back and then slide it off. This will reveal 2 battery slots. Now ive been using Energizer + batteries in it and after having the mouse for well over 6 months it still hasn't run out of battery.
The mouse has a light on the front which is green when theres plenty of battery but turns red when the battery is low. This is really handy as of course it tells me when i need to think about getting more batteries for the mouse. Dont be worried if this happens though as mine has been on red for like a week ^^. Theres obviously a roll button on the mouse and theres an off and on button on the back. The connection of the mouse is very good as you can be quite a distance away from your computer and you will still be able to control the cursor.
The mouse feels very robust due to its large size. The plastic its made out of is very solid and i highly doubt a few drops will even scratch the mouse. Personally ive dropped it many times, ive even dropped it by accident from about 2 metres onto a wooden floor and it was perfectly fine, the floor wasn't though!
You can buy the mouse with the keyboard too. If you do this you get given this sort of reciever which connects to the computer/laptop with a rather large wire. Its quite big, not much shorter than the mouse but this allows the keyboard and the mouse to connect to the computer using only one USB port.
The mouse can be used at a VERY high speed and if you were using a mouse which was much slower then it can take time to adapt but this shouldn't be much of a problem. It is very reliable as i dont think ive ever had any interference when the cursor sticks or jerks. It also has very good precision.
To me the mouse is great value for money due to its robustness, battery life and how comfortable it is when in your hand.
